Chelsea star appoints new agent as summer move away ‘very likely’

Chelsea academy graduate Mason Mount has changed agents in recent weeks as he gears up for a move away from west London this summer.

Mount is out of contract in 2024 as it stands, and new contract talks have stalled with the 24-year-old having rejected several offers from the club already, with a feeling that he is underpaid relative to other stars at the club.

It has led to the increasingly likely possibility that he is sold, with Chelsea keen not to risk losing him for free in 12 months time. Both Liverpool and Newcastle are said to be interested in the midfielder should he become available.

And, to that end, Mount has appointed Neil Fewings as his new agent, who also represents the likes of Liverpool’s Naby Keita, in a bid to work out a solution.

As per transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, it is ‘very likely’ that he will depart west London this summer, though his destination remains unclear for now.

In the more immediate future, Chelsea and England are set to come to blows over the Englishman, with Gareth Southgate having included Mount in his squad for the upcoming European qualifiers against Ukraine and Italy.

“He’s never been available as far as I’m aware”, Potter told the media.

“I don’t have all the contacts of all the doctors and so it’s not like I’m up to [speed] on everything here. But as far as I was aware, he wasn’t going to be available for us at the weekend.

“He needed a bit of time for his injury to settle down, which pretty much ruled him out of the England thing. Whether that means they needed a bit of time to double-check that, I don’t know.

“But I don’t think there’s anything untoward at all, it’s more sometimes these things can be named, but there are still a couple of days where things can be changed. But as far as I was aware, from my selection perspective, he was unavailable for the weekend.”
